What issues did or do you have with the short bed on the MegaCab?

What hitch are you using?

What pin box is on the Bayhill?

How close can you get to a full 90 degree turn?

Thanks
Hey John!
We haven't had any real issues yet. We bought the new trailer in January and the Truck in december. We have the standard pinbox on the trailer (not the air ride). With the Ram we have the factory 5th wheel quick connectors so I have the Pullrite AutoSlider. I've yet to need to get a full 90 degree turn so I'm not sure of that. ISR Series SuperGlide - for Industry Standard Rails | PullRite Hitches The Autoslider is pretty convenient I have to say, but after only a few trips it has developed a knocking (play in the connectors) that I am no so impressed with. I made an adjustment but it didn't really stop. I'm going to gopro video the play and send it to pullrite and see if they consider that normal. I'll keep you posted.

(PS yes I'm a professional photographer so the pressure is high for great images of the setup hahah. )

I was looking at the installation information and one thing seemed to be missing. How do you adjust the height of the hitch plate? Usually they have setting for 17", 18" and 19". How hight off the bed is yours?

Can you post your video when it's done? I'd love to see not only what's happening at the hitch but also what's happening behind the cab. If you happen to have to go pros one could make a nice video with a PIP of the cab bare but then most people don't have two go pros.
